Saturn Stationing 29th April, 2019 for 24 hours

Retrograding 30th April, 2019 @ 22:55 AEST (+10 UTC)

not Stationing to turn Direct until 18th September, 2019.

Greek God Cronus (Kronos), the Roman God Saturn. Being of the same archetype; Cronus/Saturn is The God & Planet of Time.

Saturn, the Ancient Roman God who, is akin to the Greek God, Cronus, The God of Time.

Not just the present time of here and now, particularly the destruction of time and it’s illusory constraints.

Along with the Tenth House, Saturn also rules: career, ambition, hard work, status, responsibility, father, the elderly, earth, property, wisdom, stability, politics, chronic ailments, limitations, restrictions, caution, karma, delays, obstacles, humility, endurance, sincerity and patience.

More negative aspects of strong Saturnian energy can be narrow minded thinking, pessimism, stinginess, antagonistic, provocateur, opportunistic, manipulative and domineering.

Astrologically, Saturn is known as the hard task-master, especially when it comes to life lessons, some of our own making, intentionally or not. He demands we remain accountable, ensuring you are and have been applying yourself, as you promised you would, in any and all aspects of your life. He thusly provides great rewards for hard work completed.

When Saturn Retrogrades in Capricorn this evening at 22:55 AEST (+10 UTC), it will be joining forces with Pluto Rx.

We will begin another sojourn to review our lives on many levels. Think of daily habits, routines, behavioural patterns, Karmic cycles, Karmic lessons (please remember, not ALL Karma is negative!) and of course how we SPEND our time.

That’s right, I said spend. Time is a non-renewable asset. Therefore, during this Retrograde make it a focus to review & discern where, with whom, and on what your time is best spent, not to mention your energy too!!

Where are you when you feel you’re wasting time and energy?

Where would rather be spending that time and energy?

What activities do you feel you’re wasting your time on?

What do you feel you would rather be doing with your time?

When during the day are you most susceptible to “time-wasting”?

How can you implement small changes to avoid this procrastination?

Saturn asks us these types of questions being the task-master, he doesn’t enable excuse making, procrastination nor avoidance / distraction tactics we subconsciously place as obstacles in front of what really needs to get done.

Look to where you are subconsciously placing barriers, obstacles or blockages up for yourself in your own life and creative pursuits. Or are you simply distracting yourself on purpose perhaps?

Considering the influx of karmic energy and lessons Saturn brings, look to your healing journey also. Saturn sheds light on the areas we feel the most inadequate, therefore if you have been triggered recently, dive deep on that line of inquiry and find the lesson within the wound.

It will most likely be a huge one for you and equally so, offering an opportunity for massive growth. To get a clearer understanding of how this will affect you personally, look to your Natal Chart to see which House and Sign Saturn resides. Saturn House placements are below.

The best piece of advice I can offer the collective at this time, and for the duration of the Retrogrades, is to breathe.

Breathe deeply into your belly. Release the tension in your shoulders, release the sense of urgency and negative rumination preventing you from creating from your divine space, and just DO! Take action.

Take solace in knowing, when you operate from this centred space, it is your higher-self taking the lead. So all will be divinely perfect. Which means, everything is a masterpiece and a work-in-progress simultaneously. It is the Divine paradox of being whole and complete whilst still growing and evolving. Things are perfect for now. This is what you must remember in order to proceed forward.

You are exactly where you are mean to be at this very point in time. Enjoy every breath of it!

As always, I hope this finds you incredibly well beloved.

If this resonates or has provided clarity and solace, drop a comment below, I’d love to hear from you.

Blessings, always.
